      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

first ascent [TR] Mongo Ridge-W.Fury F.A.- VI-5.10- 8/28/2006

My pleasure.

That what is so wrong with these winter shows.

All fired up and nowhere to go.

Now does last Augusts-Colin-show make sense?

The Pole of Remoteness is no joke. This summer I was marveling at how far back in there it is. Here I thought we were "committed" on the NF of Terror, then I looked over my shoulder at Mongo Ridge and laughed. Wayne set the bar!

There are parties interested in repeating it though. I have given several beer intensive beta sessions with young aspirants. Last summers weather would have been perfect for trying. I cant think of a funner route.

Yeah the weather last year was excellent and stable. Wish I felt ready for it last year! Maybe I can pick your brain about it at some point this year? Jason, it feels like every time I look at it it gets farther and farther away! No joke indeed!

 

I was wondering about Goodell Creek.... Such an aesthetic approach on a map, but what kind of schwack would that entail?

Shwack? Mega. I have to say its not just the approach, you would still have to get down too. Easiest way down is back to the East Fury and then Access Creek.

re: Goodell: There is an extra cliff band guarding the start down there too, The Beckey Guide photo also points out a waterfall. The "direct start" would add another 500+ feet on to an already large task.

Fury is the center of the bushwhacking universe. I think Wayne settled on the only semi reasonable way to access Mongo.
